This island is higher and more rugged than its neighbour, Inishvickillane. Tomás Ó Criomhthain records in An t-Oileánach (The Islandman) how the well-known melody Port na bPúcaí magically came to one of the Daly family living on Inishnabro. This story in turn inspired Seamus Heaney's poem The Given Note. The island may well get its name from the remarkable rock arches near Cathedral Rocks / An Charraig Scoilte at the northern tip. The word bró or breo is used in several place-names to denote a remarkable fracture of the rocks or simply a cut or notch between hills, cf. Broemountain, Brow Head, Knocknabro.
